Episode 113: What has been Driving me this week: - August as a Bridge 2020

August 21, 2020

Welcome to another edition of She’s Got Drive: What's been driving me this week!! It's a SGD short.  

This week I talk about - What if August is a time to review where we are in this crazy 2020 so that we can figure out how we are going to take the rest of 2020. It's has been so challenging we feel out of control - so what can we do to get some of that back? And can we also start to get our eye on 2021. So this is my musing and sharing if August is a bridge what might be possible for the rest of the year.

August 14, 2020

This week our guest is Jodie Patterson  - MOTHER  SOciAL ACTIVIST ENTREPRENEUR  and AUTHOR author of The Bold World: A Memoir of Family and Transformation  and more recently A Boy Named Penelope

Jodie has been lauded for her activist work by Hillary Clinton, The Advocate, Family Circle, Essence, Cosmopolitan, and Yahoo!, among others. She sits on the board of a number of gender/family/human rights organizations, including the Human Rights Campaign, and is a sought-after public speaker addressing a wide range of audiences about identity, gender, beauty, and entrepreneurship. Patterson was appointed by the United Nations as a Champion of Change.
